Jeremiah 29:11-13

"For I know the plans I have for you, says the Lord.  They are plans for good and not for evil, to give you a future and a hope.  In those days when you pray, I will listen.  You will find me when you seek me, if you look for me in earnest."

 

I know I said verse, but I had to share some more of the promise with you. 

What are some of your favorite bible verses?

I'm glad that you like it brainscanhug, however I think its more to it then us just doing the right thing since we are supposed to do it anyway without looking for a reward, its a promise to us all who know God that He has great things in store for us ALL. No matter what we may be going through. God has a plan for us to be happy in this life, if something bad was to happen God can turn it around for good if we continuely trust in and frevently seek Him. Not saying you are wrong, just thought I'd clarify it as I was taught :) :) :)

:). I like that one. I don't really know any bible versus, except for a few cursory ones that I recognize back from when I attended church school as a boy. But I recently went to a small group, and the leader gave me a free bible. <br />

I have to say, the idea in this verse is pretty true and obvious. If you do the right thing and look to God for how to live your life, your life will be much better.
